The next project comes from the Science Museum in UK and it is an attempt to rebuild one robot of the beginning of the century. I think it will be a good addition to the museum it happens and a very nice way to tell the museum what kind of things matters to the people.
Cats! Do we need to say more? Maybe a little bit. The concept of reputation is used to pass information about someone’s behaviour without having to interact directly with that person. In other words, if someone is a bad person, you can be aware of it in advance, and also in the other way, if someone is good, it is good to know. Surprisingly, this not only applies to humans, it is also true between other animals like dogs, and in between dogs and humans (yes, your dog will tell other dogs if you are good or bad for him). The next experiment aims to study if this type of reputation knowledge applies also for cats, and if cats share the reputation with other cats, so they can know which human they can trust or which one they should avoid.
A group of scientist consider ageing as a disease and wants to treat it. The key solution? We don’t know yet, but what we know for sure is that regeneration will be an important part of the solution. Why some animals regenerate better than others? Why it is easier for them to recover completely from injuries, from amputated limbs… Why there is few examples among mammals? Wouldn’t be nice to come back from surgery without scars or permanent damage to internal organs? Solving these questions and others is the aim of the next project which is focused on one type of mammal that has the ability of regenerate. By backing this project you will contribute to expand your own life spam, isn’t it a good perspective to live more?
The project this week is a ultra low price 3D printer: OLO.Basically OLO uses light to cure resin and build the parts. It only requires a vertical displacement platform and a mobile phone.
Sorry for those who doesn’t understand french. The next 22 animations are super cool and help to understand a lot of principles and techniques.
It seems easy at the beginning, but the things they build are stunning.
But what really amazes me it’s not the things they do but the things they cook. Amazing!
The experiment we highlight this week wants to help people with brain injuries. The main reason for doing so is because they will use EEG for monitoring and the more people using this technique, the better it will become. So, if you want this technology to develop, fund projects like this.
